IT in High Demand

According to this article I’m in high demand. I have lots of experience in all 12 areas. Employers should practically be knocking my door down to hire me right? Only if you live in silicon valley. Here in the Midwest IT folks still get the shaft in the compensation area compared to their valley counterparts. […]

Summer Clean Up!

Once again I am getting rid of some stuff that’s not being used in our house anymore. Items that need to go: Coin operated dart board like the kind you see in bars. Approximately 10-12 years old. Works good. $200 Like new air hockey table. Been played less than 2 hours. $300 Original front and […]

No More Dryer Sheets

I read somewhere a long time ago that dryer sheets are hard for the dryer. You are supposed to use fabric softener built into the detergent or use an additive in the washer. Then I read the complete opposite of that route, stating the dryer sheets are the way to go. Yeah, I know, flip-flop, […]
